A Wider View of the Holy Face -- from the Land of Lincoln to the Coastlands and Mountains of Italy
In the past week Fr. Daren J. Zehnle, K.H.S., a priest of the Diocese of Springfield in Illinois studying canon law at the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome, wrote about his recent visit to the Shrine of the Holy Face. His articles include a number of beautiful photographs of the Holy Face. Father Zehnle is a prolific blogger whose several sites are inspirational. Here are the links to his postings on the Holy Face.
Servant and Steward: I have looked upon the eyes of Love
Servant and Steward: The face of Jesus
Quoting Fr. Zehnle
"If you come to Rome, you simply must plan to take a half a day and visit the shrine at Manoppello; I promise you will not regret it."
"In the end, all I can find to describe what I experienced and saw is simply this: I have looked upon the eyes of Love, and I long for the day when "his servants shall worship him; they shall see his face, and his name shall be on their foreheads. And night shall be no more; they need no light of lamp or sun, for the Lord God will be their light, and they shall reign for ever and ever" (Revelation 20:3-5)."
